Price: $34.95
Out of stock.

When these tapes were made in 1983, Michael was well on his way towards carving out an unmatched legacy in the magic field. By that time he had already used these techniques to win the Gold Medal for the WORLD SLEIGHT OF HAND title in Lausanne, Switzerland, as well as Close Up Magician of the Year and Lecturer of the Year from the Academy of Magical Arts.

Following the release of these tapes, Michael went on to receive both the Close up Magician of the Year and Lecturer of the Year from the Academy of Magical Arts for a second time. Then, again using some of the techniques taught here, he went on to also receive their Parlour Magician of the Year.

As a performer, Michael has appeared on Johnny Carson’s THE TONIGHT SHOW twice and The Merv Griffin Show ten times! He has performed privately in the homes of Hugh Hefner and Michael Jackson, served as magic consultant for David Copperfield and Doug Henning T.V. specials, authored 7 Best Selling books of original magic, starred in 23 instructional video tapes, and published THE MAGICAL ARTS JOURNAL.

It has been said that others may teach magic, but Michael creates magicians. An understanding made possible only through experience, combines with a rare gift for teaching and a sincere desire for quality to make these tapes genuine classics in the field of magic!

DVD includes:

  • Introduction to the Topit
  • The BEST way to see EXACTLY what the advancements in design are
  • Where the Topit goes
  • How to use it
Perfect for developing a firm beginning foundation based on understanding. Along with an introduction to the Topit, you will see an explanation of all of the Basic Topiting Actions, along with other variations and applications, such as THE DECK VANISH. Also included are several clips from National T.V. appearances of performances using these techniques.

Advanced Topit Applications- This is a more in-depth study of the power of the Topit. Beginning with a performace for lay people using the Topit, you can see explicit explanations of everything! These are full routines and advanced techniques that require more skill and a better understanding of magic. You’ll find a performance and full explanation of THE FOUR COIN ROUTINE, MATRIX, THE DECK SWITCH (RAZORED DECK), THE FUNKEN RING, THE BALL AND SILK, and MORE!

The topit itself is very smart, and the material on here is well thought out. It isn'y easy though, and without the pattern it's more difficult to make a topit (which is why this doesn't get 5 stars). But after you get past a few initial difficulties this is the number one magician's utility device. It's cleaner than a thumb tip, less expected than sleeving, and more convenient than a pull. The only problem is not getting addicted to it!!

What you can say except, WOW!!! By far the best learning tool I have purchased to date. Not only do you get the whole kit and kaboodle, you get great tricks to do with the device. This will make you look like you actually have the power to vanish items!!! Buy this and take your magic to the next level squared.

This has been called the best Topit video ever. Anyone that seen Ammar perform with his jacket on, has probably seen him use the topit. I would advise anyone that works restaurants to pick this up.
